Indigenous and afrodescendant youths strengthen their social leadership and multiply knowledge with their peers, while generating synergies with public and private social actors in Bilwi, a city located in the Nicaraguan North Caribbean. This project is part of a program developed in Nicaragua and Guatemala to promote opportunities for indigenous and afrodescendant youths, with the financial support of Kerk in Actie (KIA).

This project works with a violence prevention strategic approach, based on popular education methodologies, to achieve recognition of rights, and contribute to erradicate different manifestations of violence. Activities are carried out in three neighborhoods of the peripheral zone of Bilwi (North Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua).

Prevention of violence seeks to create spaces for the collective reflection of adolescents and young people (women and men), on situations of gender inequality at home, school and community. It will also provide interventions in crisis at a primary level to adolescents and youths that experience social vulnerability within their families.

The work focuses on two lines of action:

- Strengthening of volunteer work in the neighborhoods.
- Involving new and diverse social actors.

To develop this project, ICCO works with the Tesis Association, a local organization specialized in violence prevention and social work at marginalized communities.
